This book help explain the emotions you go through after loss and gives them meaning. You realise everything you go through is "normal" in such circumstances and not the only person who feels the way you do. It gives life an understanding again - invaluable.
A book which spoke to me, of me and for me. An articulate and compassionate depiction of the points on the map of grief. I’m very grateful this was written, I can relate so fully to each chapter. It helps to read painful and precious experiences shared so clearly.
I bought this for a close friend who had recently lost her mother based only on the reviews that I'd read. She told me afterwards that it had really helped, so much so that she bought it for her sister too. Must be good.
